I believe it is still going through pass-2 or so. There are a couple
of problems in that a couple of things which could be 'jump-started'
from x86_64 fedora 18 -> epel x86_64 do not exist because Fedora arm32
was not as available then. This means having to go to newer versions
than what is in EPEL so the two chains do not meet. I have finally
finished my move across the country and am able to start trying to get
these together for a build tree. I will be happy to help people in the
community if they step up.
